Day 2 - Micah

Today we got the great opportunity to go out and play songs on the streets of Galway. This town loves all kinds of music and we got to talk to and meet many new people during this time. After breaking for lunch at the An Tobar Nua cafe, we relaxed some and took a shopping break. A few stores later, Jon bought a flute and we were headed back to the cafe to set up for the worship night later that evening. We got to sit and eat dinner with the staff of the church (who also happened to work at the cafe) while we set up for the event. The workers range from interns from the states to locals of Galway which made for some great conversations. As people began to pile into the small cafe, we couldn’t help but be overcome by the presence of the Lord and what He was going to do tonight. We worshipped with the congregation as two of their music leaders led us in song. As they introduced us to the congregation, I couldn’t help but chuckle at the name “Half Peeled Orange”; which they all knew us by.  Needless to say, we were blessed with an extraordinary  night of worship with our new friends. It’s only day two and God is moving so much already. Plans for tomorrow include leading worship at the church in Galway and teaching their worship team in some small study groups.

  1. Hello members of Half-Peeled Orange!

    I met Sarah a few years ago at Camp Electric, and we became friends on Facebook way back then... (I don't know if we've ever talked since then Sarah, but hey, hope life is awesome! haha) Anyway... I saw this post on my news feed and ventured over to your blog to see what a Half Peeled Orange was all about and I'm so glad I did! I just wanted to let you all know that your ministry is so inspiring, and I am praying for your work in Ireland! Thanks for glorifying God with music!!
